I got some great stuff in the mail today.  It was a mixture of TTM autograph requests and purchases.  Let's start with the TTM successes, which are my first of Spring Training 2009.

I got 2/2 from current Sox lefthanded reliever Matt Thornton.

I also got 2/2 from new Seattle Mariners manager and former Sox player Don Wakamatsu.

Now, on to the purchases!  I made huge progress on my collection of White Sox all-stars, adding 7 signed 3x5s of Sox all-stars from the 30's, 40's, and 50's!  Sandy Consuegra, Ferris Fain, Bob Keegan, Mike Kreevich, Thornton Lee, Cass Michaels, & Edgar Smith!  I now need 15 more all-stars to complete the collection!

I have saved the best for last.  I have obtained an autograph that I truly never thought I would have.  I will let the picture do the talking!

That's right, 1939 Hall of Fame inductee Eddie Collins!  It is even PSA/DNA authenticated!
